The Cumming Harvest:  This week on The Cumming Harvest


The market opens at 10AM.

Only a few more days to pre-order pastured chicken, pork and sausage from White Oak Pastures. Place your order at the market on Saturday or email Jennifer by Monday, February 19 at noon.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This has been a rough winter! Keep sickness at bay with Southern Essential’s Anti-Bacterial Essential Oil Blend. This blend of highly effective essential oils helps to reduce and kill bacteria and germs that can cause sickness. Try a few drops in your cleaning water, washer or dishwasher to boost the cleaning power and eliminate odors. Or use a few drops on your homes’ heating and air conditioning filter to help reduce airborne bacteria, or use in a room diffuser for a single room effect.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Meadow Valley Farm cheese is back on the market. Choose from Cheddar, Sharp Cheddar, Havarti, Baby Swiss, Pepper Jack, and more.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Make hamburger night easy with Indian Creek Angus’ hamburger patties. Each patty is 5.5 oz and makes a most delicious burger, especially when topped with Simply Southard’s Hot and Sweet Pickled Jalapenos. Or if you’re in the mood for something different, make lamb burgers with Bramberi Farms’ ground lamb, topped with arugula from Heirloom Gardens, and served with Cultured Traditions’ Garlic Dill pickles on the side. Either way, you can’t go wrong!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

HomeSpun Baking Company is on vacation this week but will return soon with their gluten-free bakery goods.

Champaign, OH:  You're In My Heart


Breezing through the clientele
Spinning yarns that were so lyrical…

You’re in my heart, you’re in my soul
You’ll be my breath should I grow old…
(You’re In My Heart-Rod Stewart)

Who isn’t a sap for a great love song on Valentine’s eve? This one always makes me smile, and takes me back to college days. My treasured roommate/sorority sister was a huge Rod Stewart fan. Like, big. Like, we still text each other his song lyrics, if we feel the other needs a pick up or a laugh.

One year, I think it was our sophomore year, we were totally down on our luck with the boys. The ones that we liked, were not showing the love. The ones we didn’t like, were chasing us all over campus. We both had impossible crushes on two guys, at that time, but they were simply not looking our way. We decided to ban Valentine’s that day. We blasted anti-love songs, we laughed at the sappy cards and flowers being delivered to sorority sisters. We decided that to counteract the sappiness, we would head to the downtown happy hour to drown it all out. We did. We got silly. We proclaimed our love of the single life, and we were quite obnoxious. We strolled on home, stopping at different house parties, on the way, to throw one more stab at taking down the day of love.

The next day, I came in from class, to see two huge floral arrangements at our house mother’s desk. I laughed, went up to the room to have a nap, and once I was asleep, awoke to a ringing phone to tell me flowers were waiting for me. I went back downstairs, grabbed the flowers, and laughed as the card read that while we proclaimed our distaste of the holiday, we were both, always in the hearts, of this one particular fraternity, (which will remain nameless in this story). The other floral arrangement was for my roommate.

So, this weblog is dedicated to the lovers of love, the naysayers of love, the ones out there spreading the love, and to you all…our lovely customers who show us the love, and the love of local, each and every week.

Let this be our Valentine to you…and let’s make this a total love fest to end all love fests!! You have all day, until tomorrow at 8am, to show your love by ordering!!

You’re in OUR hearts, always!! And, remember…love comes in unexpected ways…just like my college saga proved. We love the love that you shine on us…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Duette, FL:  Buttercup Squash


Dear Customers,

I forgot to add the Buttercup Squash to our availability. I have posted a recipe in the description to give you an idea of how to cook them. These are small, about the size of a softball.
We have many things replanted. Between the hurricane and the freezing, our garden has suffered. Please bear with us.

Thank you,
David and Betty
